Free Toolbox sessions will get the country Talking

Our FREE Toolbox Talk advice sessions return

  • Includes RCD and Building Standards updates

  • Fire detection and alarms also on the agenda

Our FREE Toolbox Talks are back for 2019 – so book your place today! The invaluable technical update sessions will again be touring Scotland in May and June, kicking off in Edinburgh on 7 May.

As always, our experts will be on hand to discuss the latest industry updates and developments and their potential impact on Members and their work.

The main topics up for discussion this year include:

Fire detection and alarm systems

Following an amendment to BS 5839-6, we’ll outline changes to standards and the enhanced fire safety requirements across Scotland’s housing stock.

Building Standards in Scotland

After a recent review into UK Building and Fire Safety Regulations, we’ll look at what changes to expect in Scotland and provide an update on how Certificates of Construction are now accessed and completed.

RCD selection

Our experts will deliver an overview of types of residual current device (RCD) and provide in-depth details of selection to ensure correct levels of protection, in accordance with Chapter 53 of BS 7671:2018.

Dave Forrester, SELECT’s Head of Technical Services, said: “We’re looking forward to discussing these issues face-to-face with Members and answering any other questions that they may have. Our Toolbox Talks have been growing in popularity every year, and it’s great to see so many Members taking advantage of our wealth of advice and guidance.”

As always, we’ll be joined by our industry partners, including the Scottish Joint Industry Board (SJIB), Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT) and many more.

And of course, Toolbox Talks are free to attend for all SELECT Members.
